Rec Room Series, 1993

This series of nine paintings combine Scottish tartans and wood panelling, both elements recalling a suburban North American rec room. Employing techniques of both hard-edge abstraction and abstract expressionism, the paintings poke a little fun at high art, especially as these pieces seem more destined for Sears than an art gallery.
